Farewell 2017 – Welcome 2018

The release of Star Touched made 2017 an exciting year.

20171128_100215Fifi and I made the rounds, from the Baltimore book Festival in Maryland, readings in Annapolis, MD, signings in Florida, Pennsylvania, and San Antonio, Texas. 503720171031_093023





Here are a few reviews of  Star Touched.

“Loved this book! It reminded me of the Dragonriders of Pern series, in a good way. (No dragons, but some common themes.) It moved at a good pace and had plenty of surprises, which all made sense in context. A very interesting world with believable characters. I intended to read it slowly, but could not stop myself from finishing it in a few days. Although it wrapped up the main conflict, I noticed there’s an opening for a sequel. Hoping that happens soon! Until then, I’ll have to re-read it, knowing all of the characters’ history and seeing how that changes my reading experience.” – Joanne Brazinski20171210_130610

Amy-Florida-10-23-2017“With Star Touched, Kaplan had me reeled in right from the start. I was able to place myself right in her story as if watching like a fly on the wall. The characters came alive with true raw emotion which left me wanting more. I don’t see this as a young adult book at all. My feeling is that any age group could relate and enjoy this story. It has something for everyone, but I most enjoyed the plain decent humanity of her main character. She has definitely opened the story for a sequel which I will be waiting for patiently.” –  Irene L. Henderson

book festival 2 2017“I really enjoyed everything about this book. It was engaging, entertaining and exactly what I needed. It pulled me in from the first page…I didn’t want to put it down.
Can’t wait to see what the next book brings!”

Now it’s time to welcome 2018.

I’m kicking off the year with a book signing at the Barnes & Noble in Gaithersburg, Maryland on January 6. If you’re in the area, come by and say hi.

Later in the month I’ll be visiting one of the Maryland Writers’ Association’s teen groups.  RavenCon 13 is April 20-22 this year and I’ll be there. Then on May 25-28 look for me at Balticon 52

Have a Safe and Happy 2018!
